Earlier this week we were approached by Okatie Elementary asking for some Christmas assistance for several of their families.
In keeping with the Missions Team attempts to be less 'toxic" in giving this year and after discussion with the school we would like to offer 28 families $50 gift cards to assist with Christmas for their children. (As of Tuesday, 22 families have been covered)
Our Youth will be writing Christmas Cards to go with the gift cards and helping with delivery. We will be collecting now until Dec 6.Please make your checks out to Church of the Palms with Christmas-Okatie El in the memo line.
